Pennsylvania rear-end motor vehicle accidents a real threat

On Sunday morning, April 28, an elderly Chambersburg woman died while a passenger in a car waiting to turn left into a church parking lot in Antrim Township in Franklin County, Pennsylvania.

Substantial jump in Pennsylvania pedestrian deaths

The Governors Highway Safety Association has released its annual report that analyzes preliminary 2018 pedestrian accident data and the news is not positive for Pennsylvania.

Specifically, the number of pedestrians killed in the Keystone State increased a whopping 41 percent in the first six months of 2018 as compared with the same time period in 2017.
